    The wii sd slot is worthless. It can not be used for anything useful. Just a ploy Nintendo used to make people think better of it. But it is totally useless. I have a 2 gig SD card setting in it and cant do anything with it. What a joke Nintendo.

    I..kinda agree. The SD slot is mainly for the Photo Channel. Most consumers are kids, so if they had a channel where they could play with a picture, then Nintendo thinks that they have done something with it. I think that they should have also made the SD slot compatible to play Nintendo DS games, then this wouldnt be an issue, but sadly, that is not the case. =[

    I this is easy to do? as I am thinking of getting one for that reason, or trying an sd card with a memory card reader in the usb slot, on the 360 I am thinking I might give that a try.

    Does it physically move it onto the the 360 memory card, so is no longer on your 360, or does it just create copies of the files on the card. Worried I might in some way currupt my gamertag file in some way and lose everything.

    im guessing more memory makes it faster like pc's and if your memory is full of music and stuff than i guess your gonna need a memory unit or if you want portable memory for your xbox 360

    You can only have your gamertag on one memory unit at a time, but you can keep moving it back and forth. You wont corrupt anything, but if you do all you need to do is that recover gamertag thing. You need the actual 360 memory card a sd card reader only lets you do picture,music,videos.

    if you have a 360 memory card reader for your PC then you can make copys of your gamertag so you can have it on more than 1 console
